The Festival L'Art en soi, presented by Place des Arts, offers six evenings of dancing to introduce you to different dance styles, as well as two family days on its outdoor Esplanade! Dance evenings start with an optional 1-hour workshop during which you will learn the basic steps of the featured dance; the Esplanade will then be transformed into a huge dancefloor, with a musical performance. It’s free! Reservation required.
Your are invited to spend an evening with the Ballet Raices de Colombia, showcasing one of the world’s richest folklore traditions, a blend of pre-Columbian, Spanish, and African cultures. You’ll dance to the rhythms of Bumaranga, a group whose music offers a fusion of traditional Colombian percussion and flutes with a modern, electric touch. A not-to-be-missed musical excursion!
